The Oklahoma History Center

The Oklahoma History Center is beautifully designed to provide visitors a self-guided exploration of Oklahoma–past to present. With four semi-permanent galleries, a special events hall, and outdoor exhibits guests will experience Oklahoma's spirit, triumphs and tragedies, from oil and space exploration to the land run of 1889. The Research Center offers visitors the opportunity to explore their own history through the extensive research collections and genealogical resources.
